    For liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans, it’s an easy choice regarding the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Both sides have made up their minds weeks before these hearings, which have devolved into total clown shows, started this week. With former Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl being tapped to serve the remainder of the late John McCain’s term, we have a decisive vote locked up. Kyl is probably going to vote for Kavanaugh. I’m betting McCain would have a “yea” vote as well if he were healthy. The point is the game is over. We have won. The votes are...

A "Sherpa" prepares a nominee for their hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which includes escorting the individual to dozens of meetings on Capitol Hill. Kyl served for...

    January 23, 2009 Obama to GOP: ‘I Won’ By Mary Lu Carnevale Jonathan Weisman reports on the White House. The top congressional leaders from both parties gathered at the White House for a working discussion over the shape and size of President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus plan. The meeting was designed to promote bipartisanship. But Obama showed that in an ideological debate, he’s not averse to using a jab. Challenged by one Republican senator over the contents of the package, the new president, according to participants, replied: “I won.” The statement was prompted by Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl of...

    A new video obtained by Breitbart News shows the former comedian and left-wing pundit playing with a pair of traffic cones pretending they were a pair of female breasts. Franken is seen in the video holding two cones to his chest and grinning in an apparent flash of comedy.

The event was held in support of Democratic Senate candidate Dr. Richard Carmona, who challenged Republican Senator Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. after Sen. Jon Kyl, R-AZ retire
  • Letter: What Mr. Obama’s nuclear cuts portend

    The Washington Post ^ | September 7, 2012 | Sen. Jon Kyl, minority whip & Rep. Mike Turner
    The Sept. 1 editorial “Loose talk on nuclear weapons” missed the true significance of President Obama’s breach of his nuclear weapons funding commitments. His proposed $370 million cuts — with billions more to come — are not just a “minor dip.” They go to the heart of the program to refurbish aging warheads and infrastructure. Ironically, the cut will delay or prevent achievement of one of the goals of the president’s 2010 Nuclear Posture Review: reducing the number of “hedge” warheads in our stockpile. Moreover, the president abandoned commitments he made to win support for New START. In his letter...

    You may have heard that Meryl Streep is set to play Margaret Thatcher in a film due out later this month. Whether the movie will depict Maggie fairly, I cannot say. What I do know is that the Iron Lady earned her title through an unmatched record of determination and strength, and I think now — more than ever — our country can find inspiration in what she did. In the 1970s, Britain was a nation in decline. Its influence abroad was waning; its problems at home were mounting. Successive Conservative and Labour administrations had all but given up on...

    WASHINGTON (Dow Jones) - U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl (R., Ariz.) said that Republicans are open to between $150 billion to $200 billion in increased federal revenues as part of an agreement to cut federal deficits in a bid to smooth the passage of a debt ceiling increase. But Kyl said these figures didn't include closing any of the business tax deductions that Democrats have been pushing for, saying instead the total was reached by increasing fees charged to entities regulated by the federal government or sales of federal-owned property. "I have characterized those as things like fee increases, revenue from...

    The 18 Senators Who Approve Breaking The Internet To Protect Hollywood from the not-cool dept Last fall, we noted that the Senate Judiciary Committee had unanimously voted to approve COICA, a bill for censoring the internet as a favor to the entertainment industry. Thankfully, Senator Ron Wyden stepped up and blocked COICA from progressing. This year, COICA has been replaced by the PROTECT IP Act, which fixes some of the problems of COICA, but introduces significant other problems as well. A wide cross section of people who actually understand technology and innovation have come out against PROTECT IP as written...

    The No. 2 Senate Republican said Monday that he didn't plan to seek a repeal of this weekend's vote to end "Don't ask, don't tell." Sen. Jon Kyl (Ariz.), the GOP whip, suggested that Republicans — or at least he himself — wouldn't look to undo the actions taken by Congress last week to lift the ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the military. "No, I don't have any plan in place," Kyl said on Fox News on Monday when asked if he had a plan to repeal the repeal of "Don't ask, don't tell."

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) adopted the role of Ebenezer Scrooge and scheduled the Senate to work through the Christmas holiday. Two Republicans - Jon Kyl of Arizona and Jim DeMint of South Carolina - objected, and that became political fodder for Reid, proving that nothing is off limits if a political point can be made. Reid then took to the floor of the Senate to blast the GOP. “I don’t need to hear the sanctimonious lectures of Sens. Kyl and DeMint to remind me of what Christmas means,” he said Wednesday afternoon. He also blamed Republicans - who...

Scarborough's strange self-contradiction came in the course of his diatribe against the two Republican senators for having criticized Harry Reid for threatening to keep the Senate in session through Christmas.
